Guessing it could be months or years, too many levels of bureaucracy involved.

Hopefully they will keep updating the splash screen

Can anyone explain what is happening there in simple words? Has this been a private or public land and /or has been somehow “returned” and it’s now off limits to general public to enjoy?

From what I understand

Government has removed from all station leases that portion of land which is set aside for camping. This happened when the lessees came up for renewal and took away that portion of land that was earning a bit of revenue for the lease holder from activities other than raising selling wool which was the sole reason for the lease being issued.

Some lease holders said that by getting this bit of revenue was the only way they could make ends meet, gov said no go.

To further complicate the matter there has been a claim put up across a large are of land up that way for aboriginal land rights and this has thrown a complication in the drawing up of new leases.

The gov has indicated that it will run all camping areas along the coast and they will be compiling with set down standards and rates.

That's my understanding of the situation given to me by word pof mouth.

 So, in your opinion, we could expect a Ningaloo Station style thing set up, where you book through DPAW?

 More than likely, some stations eg Warrora manage the camping on behalf of DBCA, but some let DBCA do it.


If aboriginals are involved , they probably want to manage it to get jobs.
